Yes: The doctor who ordered the blood test should be able to help with discovering the cause of the anemia (low blood count) and how to treat it. Anemia can be due to not making enough blood cells, due to bleeding somewhere, or due to early destruction of blood cells. The result is not having enough blood cells. A blood count of 7.4/27.7 is very low so one should contact her doctor as soon as possible.
